Bro will use whatever servers are configured in /etc/resolv.conf

##! Notice extension that mails out a pretty-printed version of alarm.log
##! in regular intervals, formatted for better human readability. If activated,
##! that replaces the default summary mail having the raw log output.
## Activate pretty-printed alarm summaries.
